aes-js

A fast and super-slim Javascript implementation of AES in ECB and CTR modes.

Warning

If you are looking for a generic AES encryption library, this is probably not what you are looking for. If you do not have a good reason for using ECB or CTR, or if you don't know what that means, do not use this library. Instead, use the SJCL library and the AES-CCM mode of operation.

Features

  • Based on well-reviewed AES implementation (SJCL).
  • Uses 32-bit words internally for maximal JS performance.
  • CTR mode compatible with OpenSSL and NIST test vectors.
  • Extremely portable (230 loc, 3 kb compressed).
  • Provides helpers to convert string to bytes and back.

Usage

ECB mode

var key = AES.Codec.strToWords("a non secret key"),
    block = AES.Codec.strToWords("a non secret msg");

cipher = new AES.ECB(key);

cipher.encrypt(block);

CTR mode

var key = AES.Codec.strToWords("a non secret key"),
    iv = AES.Codec.strToWords("a non secret iv"),
    block = AES.Codec.strToWords("a non secret msg");

cipher = new AES.CTR(key, iv);

cipher.encrypt(block);
